  1. What happens when you drink 10 oz of Magnesium Citrate? I'm glad you asked...

    12:05 pm: It's time. You shotgun a 10 oz bottle like it's a lukewarm PBR. It's suppose to be grape flavored but it's becoming quite clear that whoever led the R&D team that day has never actually tasted anything grape in their life. You are already regretting this decision.

    12:06 pm: You eat a handful of chips, It's going to turn to liquid form before it even clears your throat but you don't care. All is right in the world at this moment. Hold on to that. You're about to enter a very dark period in your life.

    12:37 pm: First sign of life. The pressure is growing. You already have 5 lbs of impacted crap in your colon and you basically just drank the "safe for humans" version of Drano. You feel a poop coming on finally. You think it's time. You're wrong. You get a little snake turd as a teaser.

    Take note...this is the last semi-solid thing you will see leaving your body for the next 24 hours.

    12:57 pm: That little science experiment you got cooking is about to reach it's boiling point. Your stomach is angry now. It hates you...you can feel it. You have exactly .3 seconds to make it to the nearest toilet but you can't run... NEVER run! You pray to god there is enough elasticity in your butthole to keep the gates closed 5 more steps as you start to preemptively undo your pants to save valuable time. Almost there. 3...2...1...

    12:58 pm: Sweet Mary, mother of God...is this real life? Your cheeks barely hit the seat and all hell breaks loose. The crap/ water mixture you've just created comes out with such force that it actually sprays the back of the toilet bowl at a 45 degree angle thus deflecting it in every direction but down.

    Is that blood?

    False alarm.

    That's just the remnants of a cherry pie you ate at Thanksgiving...when you were 5. The smell is horrid...the sound is frightening. You try to clench whats left of your butthole to soften the blow but it's not working. The whole house just heard your liquid fart as it gurgled out of your butt.

    1:06 pm- 8:30 pm: Everything's a blur. You have crapped out everything you have ever eaten since the day you were born, everything your ancestors have ever eaten since the early 1800's, and your butt now feels like you have a flaming hot Cheeto and the tears of a thousand Jalapeno seeds stuck in it.

    You're now curled up in the bathtub crying because you have to remain within arm's reach of the toilet at all times. You have the poop sweats.

    You meet Jesus.

    8:37 pm: You're broken.

    Your butthole is broken.

    Your spirit's broken.

    Life as you know it will never be the same. But...tomorrow's a new day. You're going to wake up, throw on the only remaining pair of underwear have and you're going to run up to Walmart with the last shred of dignity you have left...and buy yourself a new toilet brush. You've earned it.

  2. In a dark and hazy room, peering into a crystal ball, the mystic delivered grave news:

    "There's no easy way to say this, so I'll just be blunt - prepare yourself to be a widow. Your husband will die a violent and horrible death this year."

    Visibly shaken, Laura stared at the woman's lined face, then at the single flickering candle, then down at her hands. She took a few deep breaths to compose herself.

    She simply had to know. She met the fortune teller's gaze, steadied her voice, and asked:

    "Will I be acquitted?"

    Just had a catch up, I didn’t realise I’d got so far behind.

    You’re making good steady progress, keep up the good work.

     

    John. 🇺🇦

    Cheers John, hope all is well with you and yours.

     

    Thanks @elger  , @shortCummins and @Dr. Quack.

     

    Well folks, sorry for the late reply but life rears it`s ugly head again.

     

    These Eduard kits are great but their locating pins are very small and make things a bit frustrating to say the least when trying to dry fit the cockpit .

     

    So.

     

    DSCN2867

     

    You can see the size of the pins ( Look at the one on the upper engine cover.

     

    So my plan is to add some tabs to make lining up a bit easier.

     

    Plastic strips.

     

    DSCN2868

     

    Then fitted wit C/A .

     

    DSCN2869

     

    DSCN2870

     

    DSCN2872

     

    I will leave those to set before trying them out.

     

    Well it`s peeing down again so no spraying but hopefully tomorrow?

     

    Stay safe.

  4. A lady about 8 months pregnant got on a bus. She noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her. She immediately moved to another seat. This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again. He seemed more amused. When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing, she complained to the driver and he had the man arrested.

    The case came up in court. The Judge asked the man (about 20 years old) what he had to say for himself.

    The man replied...

    "Well your Honor, it was like this: When the lady got on the bus, I couldn't help but notice her condition. She sat under a sweets sign that said, "The Double Mint Twins are Coming" and I grinned.

    Then she moved and sat under a sign that said "Logan's Liniment will reduce the swelling", and I had to smile.

    Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign that said "William's Big Stick Did the Trick", and I could hardly contain myself.

    BUT, your Honor, when she moved for the fourth time and sat under the sign that said "Goodyear Rubber could have prevented this Accident"..

    ..I just lost it......."CASE DISMISSED!!"

     

    Simon.

    There definitely is a lot of lovely details in this kit, I probably should get hold of one - and you are making a great job with it, Simon :clap:

     

    Ciao 

    Go for it Giorgio, they even have marked out where the gun bays go on the upper wings. If you wanted to add them I suppose.
